by Carla Hinton Published: February 26, 2013

“The Shack” author William Paul Young (pictured) will return to Tulsa for a one-night-only speaking engagement at 7 p.m. April 9.

Young, whose latest faith-inspired book “Cross Roads” is on the New York Times best sellers list, will give a presentation at the Mabee Center on the campus of Oral Roberts University, 7777 S Lewis.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) in northeast Oklahoma.

I had an opportunity to interview Young right before his last visit to Tulsa in 2009. We talked about the phenomenal popularity — and controversy — that followed  that his best-selling book

“The Shack.”

That same year, I interviewed Christians who loved the book as well as those who had some serious concerns about the way some aspects of Christian theology were represented in the book. Either way, lots of people were talking about “The Shack” for a long, long time.

According to advance information about Young’s visit, the author will share stories about “Cross Roads” and “The Shack” with  the Tulsa audience.
